SWIFT codes: Namibian banks

Below are the SWIFT codes for all banks in Namibia. These SWIFT codes are only the active participants connected to SWIFT network. The passive participant’s codes are excluded from the list.

SWIFT code is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) and it is unique identification code for a particular bank, also in Namibia. These codes are used when transferring funds between banks, particularly for international wire transfers. Banks also used the codes for exchanging other messages between them.

The SWIFTcode consists of 8 or 11 characters. When 8-digits code is given, it refers to the primary office.

First 4 characters - bank code (only letters)
Next 2 characters - ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (only letters)
Next 2 characters - location code (letters and digits) (passive participant will have "1" in the second character)
Last 3 characters - branch code, optional ('XXX' for primary office) (letters and digits)

Currently, there are over 7,500 “live” SWIFT codes. The "live" codes are for the partners who are actively connected to the Swift network. On top of that, there are more than ten thousand additional codes, which are used for manual transactions. These additional codes are for the passive participants.

The registrations of SWIFT Codes are handled by Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (“SWIFT”) and their headquarters is located in La Hulpe, Belgium.
